Dr. Phillip Hoopes moved his practice to the Salt Lake City area from Kansas City in 2000, and Hoopes Vision was born. The clinic has become one of the premier providers of LASIK surgery in Utah and was awarded the “Best of State” award for eye care in 2018.
During LASIK surgery, a computer-guided laser reshapes the patient’s cornea. The procedure is an effective treatment for both nearsighted and farsighted patients, as well as those who deal with astigmatism and presbyopia (the inability to focus up close, usually due to age).
While LASIK surgery was developed in the 1990s, it has continued to evolve with new and improved methods and technology. Due to these advancements, some prospective patients who may have been turned away years ago, can now benefit from the procedure.
Hoopes Vision’s team of surgeons has performed more than 80,000 LASIK and PRK procedures. The clinic prides itself in offering the most cutting-edge technology and services. Potential patients who feel hesitant about putting their eyesight into another person’s hands can trust that the doctors at Hoopes Vision have the experience to answer questions and resolve concerns.
Surgeons at Hoopes Vision are skilled at blade-free LASIK and wavefront-optimized LASIK procedures, as well as PRK. This is great news for patients who are not candidates for standard LASIK surgery.
Hoopes Vision is confident that you will have a great result from your lasik surgery, and that confidence is reflected in its lifetime “See Clearly Guarantee” at no additional charge.
The company promises that your vision will be 20/25 or better within the 12-month post-operative period, or it will refund the entire cost of the procedure. Eligibility requirements and limitations are clearly outlined on the company’s website.
Dr. Hoopes first published “LASIK: A Guide for Patients and Their Families” in 2000, and the downloadable ebook is now in its 11th edition. The book is consistently updated to reflect the most up-to-date information on LASIK surgery.
Interested patients can download the ebook for free from the Hoopes Vision website or contact the clinic for a paper copy.
One of the first questions people ask about LASIK surgery is how much it will cost. While some patients may be able to pay the full out-of-pocket cost, Hoopes Vision acknowledges that LASIK surgery presents a significant financial hurdle for some people. The clinic offers four suggestions for maximizing payment options:
The company’s website is designed with the customer in mind. Whether you are interested in learning more about vision improving procedures in general or Hoopes Vision in particular, you’re sure to find what you are looking for. The website features clearly labeled tabs that offer in depth information about procedures, technology, financing, and more.
Hoopes Vision has only one location in Draper, Utah. Unfortunately, this may be a deterrent for interested patients.
The company has provided an incentive for out-of-towners, however. If your travel to the clinic requires an overnight stay, Hoopes Vision has contracted a discounted rate with local hotels. More information is available on the company’s website. Simply visit the Resources tab on the website's homepage and click on Patient Concierge.
